Toronto to Kissimmee drive trip

Jump to last reply

Expert help needed planning this drive. The facts:
1. Leaving Toronto either evening of March 8, or very early morning March 9
2. Travelling with 3 adults, and 4 children ages 6-10 including a special needs 6 year old, 3. Will need to stop every 2 hours to change drivers, kids’ toilet stops and special needs requirements
4. Can arrive Kissimmee either Saturday March 10 or Sunday 11
5. Must be back in Toronto by Monday March 19 evening
6. The planned route is through Buffalo then I-79 and I-77

The questions:
Is the Buffalo route the best choice?
Obviously this trip cannot be done as a one continuous drive, so we need suggestions for locations to stay overnight, if possible in low rise kid friendly accommodations where the kids can play outside.
Also as we need to stop every 2 hours are there any places to visit for approx 45 minutes so the kids can get a break and blow off steam.
We are hoping to make the drive part of the vacation not an ordeal for everyone.
any suggestions appreciated
